Opportunity Description

Applications for the Harry Frank Guggenheim Distinguished Scholar Awards are now open. The program’s purpose is to recognize leading researchers proposing to make a significant contribution to illuminating an issue of violence. Worldwide, applicants can submit their proposals in social and natural sciences and other aligned disciplines, which promise to increase understanding of the causes, manifestations, control of violence, and aggression. Individual and team applicants are highly encouraged to submit their proposals before the given deadline.

Organized by: Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation
Closing date: August 1, 2022
Result announcing date: December 2022

The Foundation supports research into the fundamental mechanisms that lead to violence. Still, priority is given to proposals that make a compelling case for the relevance of potential findings for policies to reduce these ills. Similarly, historical research is considered to the extent that it is relevant to a current violent situation. Examinations of the consequences of violence are welcome insofar as a compelling case can be made that these outcomes may serve as causes of future violence.
